A federal jury signaled a deadlock yesterday on a remaining count in the trial of a Philadelphia investment banker accused of lying to the FBI, but then resumed deliberations and will return this morning for another effort to reach a verdict. "It appears that the jury cannot reach a unanimous verdict on Count One," the jury foreman wrote in a note before 3 p.m. to U.S. District Judge Michael M. Baylson. "Certain positions will not change based on the evidence presented. " Baylson asked the jury to try again "for some period of time" to reach a verdict in the case against Denis J. Carlson, who is accused of lying to FBI agents when they questioned him in the wide-ranging investigation into corruption in Philadelphia government.

The jury in the insurance-fraud trial of boxing promoter Don King began deliberations yesterday in New York after lawyers finished closing arguments. U.S. District Judge Lawrence McKenna instructed the jury on the law, then the jurors deliberated about an hour before going home. Earlier, the judge took the unusual step of letting the defense provide a 15-minute response to the government's rebuttal. The prosecutor was then allowed another five minutes. The additional arguments were permitted by McKenna because jurors were returning from a three-day holiday weekend, and the judge feared they were too far removed from last week's arguments to allow only a prosecutor to speak.

Defense lawyers for former State Sen. Vincent J. Fumo moved late today for an immediate halt in jury deliberations and the removal of one juror, contending that the juror posted oblique remarks on Facebook.com and Twitter.com - including one declaring, "Stay tuned for a big announcement on Monday everyone!" The petition, filed on the eve of the scheduled sixth day of deliberations in Fumo's federal corruption trial, stated that there was "substantial evidence" that the juror, who was not identified, had violated admonitions not to disclose the status of deliberations.

A JURY DELIBERATED for about two hours yesterday without reaching a verdict in the trial of a man accused of terrorizing and robbing four people over a two-week period in June 2013, and killing one of them.

Defendant Thomas Coffee, 25, of Willow Grove, testified last week that he had posted a Craigslist ad to sell a blue Yamaha Banshee all-terrain vehicle.

DURING A CHAOTIC struggle in a Feltonville corner bodega in August 2013, Eric Torres "did not act in any way to intentionally shoot or assault any officer," a defense attorney told a jury yesterday in her closing argument. Torres was on the ground, on his stomach, in the back of the Almonte Mini Market, at 4th and Annsbury streets, with cops on top of him, defense attorney Catherine Berryman said. She agreed Torres had a gun on him that day, but argued that "the gun went off" when a cop "pulled on it" during the melee, or the trigger could have accidentally got caught on something and fired.

Jury deliberations in the Don Tollefson fraud trial will continue Wednesday after Bucks County Court jurors did not reach a verdict Tuesday night. The panel of five women and seven men heard closing arguments Tuesday morning before they began to consider whether the former Philadelphia sportscaster duped about 200 people and a few charities out of $340,000. Tollefson, 62, failed to deliver sports-related travel packages that he sold in the name of charity. The question the jury must answer is whether he set out to rip off the charities and ticket buyers, or whether he was the bad businessman he contends he was. "I am not a criminal," an exhausted-looking Tollefson, who served as his own attorney, told the jury on the trial's 11th day. Summing up his case, Tollefson said he operated his Winning Ways charity to help poor city children and wounded veterans for decades without complaint.
